Brief Description:  Miscellaneous, including front seats

I was taking it easy after the riveting marathon yesterday. My first task was to add the eyeball vents to the NACA vent bodies, and pre-drill the NACA vent bodies in preparation for gluing and riveting to the fuselage. I also received the oxygen harnesses from Aerotronics, so I ran the long cable from the bottle to the forward fuselage through the conduit and attached the others in the overhead so I could test whether I can route them through the cabin brace.

The rest of the day was spent working with the front seats. The last time I worked with these I broke a tap partway through the job. The rails are a tight, precise fit and I needed to run a tap through the plate nuts to get the screws in. This time I continued the process, using cutting oil to prevent losing another tap. With the rails in place, I modified the front of the nylon guides to allow the seats to be put in even with the flap housings in place. Instead of simply beveling the front of the guides, I trimmed them to a more exact fit to ensure maximum support all the way to the front.

There's really no need for the seats to remain in place, though I hope the rails can stay put now. The real reason for putting them in is to help position the rudder pedals as I install the connections for the rudder cables. After that, other than for the upcoming airshow, the seats can go back in storage until the cabin top is installed.
